ANOTHER SCIENTIFIC WONDER IP 3S!PSIIErB THE TRUE DIGESTIVE FLUID, OR A Great Dyspepsia curer, Prepared from RENNET, or the fourth Stomach of the Ox, after directions of Baron Liebig, the great Physiological Chemist, by J. S. Houghton, M. D., No. 11, North Eighth Street, Phila delphia, Pa. This is a truly wpnderful remedy for Indi gestion, Dyspepsia, Jaudice, Liver Com plaint, Constipation, and Debility. Curing after Nature's own method, by Nature's own agent, the Gastric Juice. tr Half a spoonlul of this Fluid, infused in water, will digest or dissolve, Five Pounds of Roast Beef in about two hours, out of the stomach. DIGESTION, Digestion is Chiefly performed in the stomach by the aid of a fluid which freely exudes from the inner coat of that organ, when in a state ol health, called tho Gastric Juice. This fluid is the Great solvent of the Food, the Purifying, Preserving, and Stimula ting Agent of the stomach and intenstines. Without it thero will be no digestion,—no conversion of food into blood, and no nu trition of the body; but rather a foul, torpid, painful, and destructive condition of the whole digestive apparatus. A weak, half dead, or injured stomach produces no good Gastric Juice, nnd hence the disease, dis tress and debility which ensue. I'ErsiN AND RENNET. —Pepsin is the chief element, or great Digesting Principle of the Gastric Juice. It is found in great abun dance in the solid parts of the human stom ach after dejtli, and sometimes causes the stomach to digest itself, or cat i'self up. It is also found in the stomach of animals, as the ox, calf, &c. It is the material used by farmers in makirg cheese, called Rennet, the effect of which has long been the spe cial wonder of the dairy. The curdliug of milk is the first process of digestion. Ren net possesses astonislii-g power. The stom ach of a calf will curdle nearly one thou sand times its own weight of milk. Baron Liebig states that, 'One part of Pepsin dis solved in sixty thousand parts of water, will digest meat and other food." Diseased stomachs produce no good Gastric Juice Rennet or Pepsin. To show that this want may be perfectly supplied, we quote the following SCIENTIFIC EVIDENCE! BARON LIEBIG, in l.is celebrated work on Animal Chemistry, says : "An Artificial Di gestive Fluid analngous to the Gastric Juice, may be readily prepared from the nucous membrane of the stomach of the Call, in which various nrticlos of food, as meat and eggsH will be softened, changed, and diges ted, just in the same manner as they would be in the human stomach." Dr. Pereira, in his famous treatise on "Food arid Diet," published by Fowlers & Wells, New Y'ork, page 35. slates the same great fact, and describes the method of prep aration. There are few higher authorities than Dr. Pereira. Dr Combe, in his valuable writings on the "Physiology of Digestion," observes that "a diminution of the due quantity of the Gastric Juice is a prominent and all-pre vailing cause of Dyspepsia;" and he states that "a distinguished professor of medicine in London, who was severely afflicted with this complaint, finding every thing else to fail, had recourse to the Gastric Juice, ob tained from the stomach of living animals, which proved completely successlul." Dr. Graham, author of the famous works on "Vegetable Diet," says : "it is a remar kable fact in physiology, that the stomachs of animals, macerated in water, impart to the fluid the property of dissolving various articles of food, and of effecting a kind of artificial digestion of them in no wise dif ferent from the natural digestive process." Dr. Simon's great work, the "Chemistry of Man," (Lea & Blanchard, Phila.. 1846, pp. 321-2): "The discovery of PEPSIN fo ms a new era in the chemical history of Di geslion. From recent experiments we kn oxv that food is dissolved as rapidly in an artificial digestive fluid, prepared from Pep sin, as it is in the natuial Gastric Juice it self." Professor Dunglison of the Jefferson Col lege, Philadelphia, in'his great work on Hu man Physiology, devotes more than fifty pages to an examination of this subject. His experiments with Dr Beaumont, on the Gastric Juice, obtained from the living hu man stomach and from animals are well known. "In all cases," he says, "digestion occurred as perfectly in the artificial as tho natural digestions." As a DYSPEPSIA CURER, Dr HoughlOris preparation of Pepsin has produced the most marvellous eflects, curing cases of De bility, Emaciation, Nervous Decline, and dispeptic Consumption, supposed to be on :he very verge of the grave. It is imposs ble to give the details of cases in the limit of this advertisement—but authenticate certificates have been of more than two hun dred Remarkable Cures, in Philadelphia, New- York, and Boston alone. These were nearly all desperate cases, and tho cures were not only rapid and wonderful, but per manent. It is a great Nervous Antidote, and par ticularly useful for tendency to billions dis order, Liver Complaint, Fever and Ague, or badly treated Fever and Ague, and the evil effects of Quinine, Mercury, and otherdrugs upon the Digestive organs, after a long sick ness. Also, for excess in eating, and the too free use of ardent spirits. It almost rec onciles Health with Intemperance. OLD STOMACH COMPLAINTS. —There is no form of Old Stomach Complaints which it does not seem to reach and remove at once. No matter how bad they may bo, it gives Instant Relief I A single dose removes all the unpleasant symptoms, and it only needs to be repeated, for a short time, to make these good offsets permanent.

Added to this are other extracts, more active and powerful, and which effect in combination with the Sarsaparilla, what the hit I ter article, or combined with the most powerfu poisons, cannot atone accomplish.

Read and be Convinced. The Hon. Charles D. Ilineline, Editor of j the "Camden Democrat,"lhe best paper in j I West Jersey, says, July 21: — ' "HOOFLAND'S GERMAN BITTERS." —"We ! have seen many flattering notices of this [ medicine, and tho source from which they Came, induced us to make inquiry respect ing its merits. From inquiry we were per suaderl to use it, and must say we found it specific in its action upon diseases of the liver and digestive organs, and the powerful influence it exerts upon nervous prostration I is really surprising. It calms and stregthens | the nerves, bringing them into a state ol re , pose, making sleep relreshing. [From the "Boston Bee."] The editor said, Dec. 22d—: '•Dr. Hoofland's Celebrated German Bitters for tho cure of Liver Complaint, Jaundice, | Dyspeysia, Chronic or Nervous Debility, is J deservedlv one of the most popular rnedi- I cines of the day. These Bitters have been used by thousands, and a friend at our elbow I says he has himself received an effectual | and permanent cure of Liver Complaint I from the use of this remedy. We are con- I vincetl that, in the use of these Bitters, the patient constantly gains strength and vigor— a fact worthy of great consideration. They are pleasant in taste and smell, and can be used by persons with the most delicate stom achs with safely, under any Circumstances. We are speaking from experience and to the afflicted we advise their use." Judge M. M. Noah, n gentleman with great scientific and and litterary attainments, said in his " New York Weekly Messenger," i January 6, ISSO. "Dr Hoofland's German Bitters. —Here is [ a preparation which the leading presses in j the Union appear to be unanimous in re-j reason is obvious. It i is made after-'a ' jfre scripticm furnished by one o: the inrSt celebrated physicians of 1 modern times, the lato Dr Christopher Wil- j helm Hoofland.TVofossor to the University | of Jena, Private Musician to the King of i Prussia, and one of the greatest medical wri ters Germany has ever produced. He was emphaticall" the enemy of humbug, and the.efore a medicine of which he was the inventor and endorser may be confidently re lied on. He specially recommended it in | Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia, Debility, Ver- I tigo, Acidity of the Stomach, Constipation, ! and all complaints arising from a disordered condition of the stomach, the liver arid the intestines. Nine Philadelphia papers express their conviction of its excellence, and sev eral ot the editors speak of its effects from their own individual experience. Under these circumstances, we teel warranted, not only in calling the altention of our readers to Hie present proprietor's (Dr. C. M. Jack son's) preparation, but in recommending the article to all afflicted." MORE EVIDENCE. Tho "'Philadelphia Saturday Gazette," the best family newspapei published in the Uni ted States, the editor says of DR. HOOFLAND'S GERMAN BITTERS. "It is seldom that we recommend what are termed Patent Medicines to tho conli- j dence and patronage of our readers; and, | therefore, when we recommend Dr. Hoof land's German Bitters, we wish it to bo dis I tinctly understood that we are not speaking! of the nostrums of the day, that are noised about for a brief period and then forgotten ! after they have done their guilty race of mis | chif, but of a medicine long established, i universally prized, and which has met the | hearty approval of the Faculty itself." Evidence upon evidence lias been re- i ceived (like the foregoing) from all sections j ot the Union, the last three years, and the strongest testimony in its favor, is, that there is more of it used in the practice of the regu lor Physicians of Philadelphia than all other nostrums combined, a fact that can easily be established, and fully proving that n sci entific preparation will meet with their qui et approval when presented even in this form. That this medicine will euro Liver Com plaint and Dyspepsia, no one can doubt, al ter using it as diiected. It acts specifically upon the stomach and liver—it is preforable to calomel in all bilious diseases —the offecl is immediate. They can be administered to FEMALE or INFANT with safety and reliable benefit, at any time. BEWARE OF COUNTERFEITS. This medicine has attained that high char acter which is necessary for all medicines to attain to induce counterfeiters to put forth a spurious article at the risk of the lives of those who are innocently deceived.
